Online courses are not just cool and modern, they are helping people get an education who could not otherwise get that education.
Listen for them asking for help. They may be anxious. They may be tired. Many students are returning to their parents’ home where they may not be welcome. Others will be at home with partners who are violent. School has been a safe place for them, and now it’s not available to them.
My U notified us two days ago we are moving online. The next day they said that Zoom bandwidth was already overloaded. Technical question: how do packets flow in Zoom? Assume I'm working at home and students are not on campus. Does the U run a zoom server, so it's the U's bandwidth which is the problem? I assume Zoom is not peer-to-peer or using multicast
Ask yourself: Do I really care about this? (Probably not, or else you would have explored it earlier.)
I appreciated this article, as a student going back to school. I was uneasy with the idea of this transition but didn’t know why, at least fully, until I read this. I’m not thrilled about one of my teachers expecting a synchronism class with students having video and audio on to broadcast if called on. I only have my phone’s hotspot.
Nobody signed up for this.
The humane option is the best option.
We cannot just do the same thing online.
We will foster intellectual nourishment, social connection, and personal accommodation.
We will remain flexible and adjust to the situation.
